Feisty Bobby Cox inducted into BB Hall of Fame
COOPERSTOWN, N.Y. (AP) Bobby Cox, who guided the Atlanta Braves to an unprecedented 14 straight division titles and 15 playoff appearances, has been inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame.
A light-hitting infielder who appeared in 220 games for the New York Yankees in 1968-69, Cox found his niche in the dugout. He retired after the 2010 season with 2,504 victories in 29 seasons, fourth behind Connie Mack, John McGraw and fellow inductee Tony La Russa.
The feisty Cox, who also spent four years in Toronto, was a four-time Manager of the Year, three in the NL and one in the AL, and holds the major league record with 159 ejections.
